5GHz PtP link with 2600e access points

Hello,

In the old days I used two autonomous 1242AG access access points to create a 5GHz PtP link with 2 patch antennas (over small distance 50meters and on on private premises) to connect an small building or garage were there was no ethernet availible. and used the 2.4GHz radio to serve clients in the small building area, worked great.

My questions now are?

  • Can I use the same setup with the 2602e access points?

  • If so, would I be able to use them controller based?

  • Can I connect a switch/or additional access point behind the 2602e (bridge) in the small building/garage? Would that addtitional access point be able to connect and register to the WLC

Best regards

Joeri

Yeah I would put them in bridge mode and if you want to connect a switch, you need to enable Ethernet bridging on the mesh.

Yes.  Just convert the 2600 into autonomous IOS.

Yes you can use a controller. You would put both aps I'm bridge mode (mesh).

But if I were you I would go autonomous ..
